In 1998 Jonathan Palmer, the Doctor who turned Formula One driver to Grand Prix commentator, launched a new single seat race series that has transformed the route into International Motor Sport for many drivers.
Formula Palmer Audi (FPA) aims to provide a level playing field so as to allow drivers’ natural talents to shine through. FPA cars are a look-alike Formula One with wings and slick tyres, the chassis being constructed by Van Diemen and powered by an Audi 1.8 Turbo engine producing up to 350 BHP. To ensure consistency all cars are owned by FPA and prepared at their Bedford Auto Drome headquarters.
That same year, FPA launched a two race series for Rookie Drivers, targeted at people like me who felt they had the talent to race but did not have the time, funding or sponsorship to be professional racers.
For 2000, FPA expanded this into a four race series, two each at Donington and Brands Hatch.
The 2001 Rookie Race Series was further expanded to six weekend meetings with twelve races in total. The 2002 Championship also followed this same format
For 2003, FPA has created a well-spaced calendar, racing at some of the UK’s greatest circuits.
